I've never seen any Pentax model on sale over here, incoming, outgoing, no going, doesn't matter. Full price or off to the second hand market.

Which, if course, is why...

Does that mean you are going to buy a K-3? It seems to be what you're implying,

Of course not. Why buy at a high price now if I can get it at a high price when it's on its way out?

Well, now that does imply that I'm going to buy one at some stage. Which in itself is good enough reason not to buy one.

Cocoa with a dash of brandy would work just fine, though
OK.

Try asking Henry about it in the Ask B&H Photo forum.
It is in the "working on it" stage right now.

Okay. Tokyo is doomed? Pentax is doomed? Not necessarily.
Remember the immortal words of Bill Clinton: "I did not have, no, wait, the other quote: "It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is', is."

I talked to a very smart man this summer, who claimed Bill Clinton is the smartest man he ever met... I wonder if he bought a K-3.

I suspect a great number of people who have met him could say that. I'm sure he's way too smart to buy a K-3. Even if it is a great camera, it still has the manufacturer's name on the back.

I don't think he was a true troll. I think he wanted to stir the pot a bit, but he forgot to factor in Murphy's Law and the Law of Unintended Consequences.
So he lives in Colorado, then?

I wonder what happens to immortal words when nobody can remember them. Like, you know, like...

Ok, that in itself is reason enough for not buying a K-3!

I'm not sure where he lives, but I've had this nagging feeling that his real name may be Ned Somthingorother.

In that case I think I know his brother. I'm pretty sure he lives Somewhereorother (which is quite hard to pronounce if you live east of the Mississippi!).
